BUS transfers are in place between Casement Station, Tralee, and Mallow Station during works being carried out at Minish level crossing.

Due to engineering works at Minish, in conjunction with Kerry County Council, Iarnród Éireann/Irish Rail advises all intending passengers that bus transfers will operate from all stations between Casement Station, Tralee, and Mallow Station (in both directions) from tomorrow, Tuesday, October 10 (8.45am until 7pm), Wednesday, October 11 (8.45am until 3.15pm) and Thursday, October 12 (8.45am until 7pm).

“To avoid delaying trains at Mallow Station, customers should note that bus transfers will depart all stations between Casement Station, Tralee, and Mallow Station – earlier (for example: 8.45am bus transfer departs Casement Station, Tralee for Mallow),” said Iarnród Éireann.

During the engineering work, Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail is also asking mobility impaired customers to contact them in advance of the day of travel, so that arrangements can be put in place.

In addition, customers should note that delays may occur during bus transfers. “Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail would like to thank customers for their patience and understanding during these engineering works – and apologise for any inconvenience, which may occur,” stated Iarnród Éireann.

For further information, customers should log on to www.irishrail.ie or contact the Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail Customer Contact Centre on 1-850-366222.

It is just over a week since new restrictions were announced by the Government in an another effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

In our latest online poll we asked our readers if they had reduced their social contacts over the course of the last week.

An overwhelming 62.90% said they had reduced their level of contacts with people.

Interestingly, 37.10% of people had made no change to their lifestyle, but they could have been extra cautious already.

A tiny minority – just 1.61% – said they increased their social contacts over the last week.

Local students went to great efforts on Friday last to highlight a very important message about inclusion.

Staff and students in Killarney Community College came together for ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’ as part of a national campaign where second-level schools take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

All staff wore a rainbow colour and students wore rainbow coloured accessories to show their support for the campaign as Killarney Community College is a diverse, inclusive, accepting, and welcoming safe space for everyone.

The majority of students made a particularly great effort in terms of wearing rainbow coloured accessories were awarded house points.

During the week, the LGBTI+ flag was hanging proudly in the school canteen. Transition Years decorated the General Purpose area with informative posters, and in SPHE classes, students learned about LGBTI+ terminology and history.

“It’s important that school is a safe and inclusive place for anyone attending regardless of their race, sex, religion or sexuality,” Principal, Stella Loughnane, said.

“I’m delighted that our school community marked the occasion and brought great colour while highlighting a very important message. One of the key words of our mission statement is inclusion making this awareness day a very apt one.”
